Hundreds line up in Plano for flu shots

Posted: Updated:
PLANO, Texas -

Hundreds of people lined up for flu shots in Plano Saturday morning.  Collin County residents were willing to stand in line for hours, especially with the flu running rampant across North Texas.

A big reason for the turnout could be because the shot was free.  The Collin County Medical Reserve Corps says that can be very important for some families.

"Vaccines can be expensive for people who don't have insurance or if you have a large family." Says The Medical Reserve Corps' Rebecca Drekmann.  "$25 for a family is a lot."

The clinic expected to run out of flu shots.

Some people were turned away from Saturday's clinic because the vaccine being given out wasn't for anyone over the age of 65.
